Q

What’s the main difference between Bishard Homes and its competition?

A

Bishard Homes is a home developer whose mission is, and always has been, to honor God by providing the most exceptional buying experience that exhibits team excellence, conscience and care.

Q

I have land or a lot in mind, and would like to have a Bishard Home built. How long is this process and what will the process look like?

A

We estimate construction time taking anywhere from 90-120 days after signing contracts and approval has taken place. Please note that all construction dates are estimated- tentative and not guaranteed. We do our best to estimate these dates, but construction can be affected by many factors that are not always controllable. To learn more about our construction process, click HERE.

Q

Do I need a Buyer’s Real Estate Agent to Buy from Bishard Homes?

A

Buyer’s agents are welcome, though not necessary, with Bishard Homes. If you’re ready to get started with or without a Buyer’s agent, please e-mail hayden@bishardhomes.com or call our office at (757) 333-8750.

Q

What is the difference between buying in a neighborhood versus a stand-alone home?

A

There are great benefits in either situation, depending on your wants, needs and family situation. Our neighborhoods offer a great community feel, many of which include communal parks or other outdoor areas, great for kids or adults of all ages. All of our stand-alone or small groupings of homes are located in prime locations, many of which are just blocks from the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. These homes are great options for empty nesters, small families, or those who don’t necessarily need the neighborhood feel. To get started in finding which of our homes is right for you, click HERE.

Q

How does Bishard Homes serve the local community?

A

Because we are a company that strives to honor God in all we do, we are dedicated to service. We believe that we are not only building homes, but building a community. To find out more about the organizations we partner with to bring this vision to life, click HERE.

Q

Do you offer custom home building services or are all of your homes sold move-in ready?

A

Bishard Homes does not build custom homes, but we do have options for buyers wishing to channel their own personal style. We love working with buyers to figure out which of our floorplans will work best for them, making adjustments to fit unique needs, and allowing color selections to be made throughout the design process.
